However improbable, there is now at least one thing Michelle Obama and Joe Rogan have in common: both of their podcasts are available exclusively on Spotify.

Well, they will be when the former First Lady debuts her new show, The Michelle Obama Podcast, on the audio streaming service on July 29. The announcement comes a little over a year after she and former President Barack Obama signed a podcast deal with Spotify.

“It should be just the start, as Spotify inked a multiyear agreement with Higher Ground,” the Obama’s production company, which is also behind the husband-and-wife duo’s recent Netflix projects, Engadget noted.

Michelle Obama took to Twitter on July 16 to promote the release date for her podcast, writing, “It’s been a tough year and I hope this podcast can help us explore what we’re going through and spark new conversations with our loved ones.”

What will be discussed on said podcast? On Twitter, she mentions relationships, friendships, “the challenges and the joys of being a parent or a spouse,” but the most intriguing part is the guests, who Obama mentions are “some of the people [she’s] closest with.”

In a press release, Spotify names a few of these esteemed friends and colleagues, including Dr. Sharon Malone MD, Craig Robinson, Valerie Jarett, Michele Norris and Conan O’Brien.

Wait, is Michelle Obama saying Conan is one of the people she’s closest with? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
